—Beware the Gravity Bug
SEALED off from the crumbling civilization outside, the residents of the FURC may be safe from external threats, but their isolation only speeds the spread of a dangerous new infection, even as an upcoming election exposes divisions among them. And the fourteen square mile compound may not be big enough to prevent the pressure from building into violent upheaval.
Illness lays low Security Chief Anthony Nelson when he’s needed the most—as the crisis grows critical, will he jump back into the fray before he’s fully recovered? Lt. Katherine Miles has her own issues, but with Tony out of action, dealing with everyone else’s problems is distracting her from the real danger.
Caroline Sanderson runs in the election hoping to keep the community from falling apart, but she’s unprepared for what her rivals will do to win. Meanwhile, David Belue helps Dr. Amita Harker investigate the virus sweeping the FURC. Will the escalating epidemic eliminate everyone—or will they destroy themselves first?

Litherland resumes his trilogy with the same writing style that I’ve come to enjoy. His descriptions bring the world to life while adding a gritty feel to the tale. This fast paced story, with many plot twists held my attention throughout. It was a fun and intriguing read that further develops the dystopian world in which he sets his tale. I enjoyed the interpersonal relationships between the major characters in the story. They were as important to my enjoyment of the tale as the action of the story. The contrasting personality types gives the tale the feel of an entire community, with the extremes to be expected of a community long isolated. Litherland’s stories build on one another, culminating in this intriguing story. It was an interesting read that I would definitely recommend to others. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
This last book of the Slowpocalypse series is more dialogue and intrigue with some action. It all occurs inside the compound around a flu epidemic going around and election of a community council member. There are a lot of characters to keep track of, there is a cheat sheet at the beginning of the story to help. The characters are well developed and the dialogue and plot line are logical, interesting and have a lot of twists and turns. Once you get into this book it is hard to put down. The story brings to mind a lot of things to think about when civilization breaks down. I received this from the author for an honest review. No compensation involved. I really enjoyed this series and recommend to any and all. WELL DONE!
